The Parade is scheduled to commence at 2:30 p.m. on Monday, and will feature eight official floats, 60 groups (including mounted units and cultural organizations) and military units. Over 8,800 people (and close to 200 animals!) will take place in the parade, which will march down Pennsylvania Avenue following the ceremony.

Members of the public planning to attend can find information on access points, security, and scheduling here.

Here's the organizations which will be participating in the Inaugural Parade, in order of succession:
